What are 360° Views?

360° Views are 2D spherical images processed as part of your Matterport Spaces. Much like Google Street View, 360° Views allow a viewer to look up, down, and all around a location from a single fixed point. They are captured with the Matterport Pro Camera before, during, or after 3D scanning a Space. They can be accessed directly from the Highlight Reel or set as the Start location of your 3D tour, but are not included in the Dollhouse view.

Special note: A 360° View is different from a 3D Scan, as it only collects 2D data and not depth data. It is not ‘aligned’ with the data from your Space, but is connected to the Highlight Reel of your 3D tour.

How do I get 360° Views?

360° Views require no additional software or equipment. Simply upgrade your Capture app from the iTunes store (link) to enable this feature. You will see a new button which will allow you to switch modes between 3D Scans and 360° Views. You may choose to capture your property in 3D, and then capture outdoor areas at the end, or capture 360° Views throughout your scan. Once you have processed your model, you will be able to include 360° Views as part of your Highlight Reel or set as a Start Location in Workshop.

What customers say

“Being able to scan outdoors is huge. Offering 360° Views along with 3D tours will absolutely help us sell.”

“Using 360° Views is way more efficient than our traditional process. The nice benefit is you can see a preview of your scan and get real time feedback.”

“360° Views can definitely replace the methods of outdoor scanning I am currently using. We can now eliminate our manual workaround and provide one model with everything in one place.”
